Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Princess Hotel San Juan
I had friends who stayed here and I stayed at the At Windchimes, their room and hotel was much nicer than ours and only slightly more expensive. When I go back, I will definitely stay at Coral Princess, it is a beautiful hotel, is very clean and the staff is friendly.
I had no knowledge of lodgings in Puerto Rico, so did some checking on the internet and our travel agent also did some research. I was very pleased with this property, it was very clean, had a very nice patio area and small pool area. The rooms are very adequate in size for two (unless you are used to extra large rooms), if you need a closet, that could be a problem. I felt the property was safe and there are good restaurants within a block plus a Walgren's Drug Store around the corner. I was very happy with the personnel, the property and the price.
Stayed there for 2 nights. The room was incredibly small, but it's a nice place with a good breakfast.
Enjoyed the Inn and Staff
We stayed a week before our cruise at this lovely Inn. And then after our cruise stayed an additional day, and it was like coming home! The staff is extremely friendly and informative. Booked an excursion with them and used Mary B. Tours...to the rain forest. We found the hotel to be clean and convienently located to many restuarants and to the beach...1 1/2 blks...around the corner. All of our requests, like clothes hangers, extra pillows, and towels..were completed without a hitch! The only thing we would recommend to the hotel is to keep the hot tub on the roof running at all times. The breakfast is good...offering cereals, breads, coffee, juice, fruit and milk. Also Ham and cheese slices. All in all, enjoyed this lovely Inn. K and L from MN
Royal treatment at the Coral Princess!
We loved the Coral Princess. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were sparkling clean, nicely outfitted, and good value for the price. We didn't mind having a small room because we enjoyed all the public spaces there- quiet and cozy living room, lush patio courtyard, rooftop getaway. Continental breakfast was delicious with fresh pastry and other tasty options. We liked its proximity to the beach and lots of good restaurants. While the neighborhood feels busy, this hotel has its own zone of tranquility. Highly recommended!!
Combine this with a night at El Convento in Old San Juan and you'll experience two lively areas of the city- and sleep peacefully at night.
A Charming Boutique Hotel in the Condado
This is a charming little boutique hotel in the Condado section of San Juan. The location is excellent, a block away from the shops and entertainment venues of Ashford Avenue and about two blocks from the beach. We had a penthouse room (one of three that share the top floor of the hotel) which featured a large bedroom, walk in closet, twin sinks in the bathroom and a very large jucuzzi tub/shower. All three penthouse rooms share a common sitting room, dining room, office and spacious kitchen. There is a large outdoor deck just off the balcony with table, chairs, lounges and an outdoor hot tub. Our room rented for approximately $210 a night. Our friends had one of the regular rooms which rented for approximately $125.00 a night. It was a bit on the small side but adequate and very competitively priced given what is available elsewhere. Cab fare to the airport is $16.00 and $12.00 to Old San Juan. The Inn is kept in immaculate condition (very clean) with some really charming common areas and interesting art work. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Only complaint was the continental breakfast which was not in keeping with the quality of the rest of the hotel (Costco sliced deli ham and individually wrapped cheese slices, small pastries (which were stale), and Costco yogurt). Save your appetite and eat at one of the many nearby breakfast venues on Ashford Ave! Also -- if you are looking for a place to eat dinner, I highly recommend La Chaumiere at 367 Tetuan St. in Old San Juan.
A charming hotel with a great location
We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the Coral Princess Inn in the Condado area of San Juan. This small inn offers alot at a very reasonable price. The penthouse 2 was lovely, well decorated, and spacious, with a nice balcony, and easy access to the outdoor hot tub (as well as having a wonderful indoor Jacuzzi). The breakfast room was lovely, outdoors in a shaded courtyard and surrounded by plants. We found the front desk staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The snorkeling trip to Icacos on the Spread Eagle II, recommended by the inn, made our trip to Puerto Rico very special. The locaton was excellent, within walking distance of many of the Condado restaurants recommended by our guide books, and close to the beach as well as Ashford Avenue for shopping and evening walks. The old city of San Juan is conveniently close by, and easily reachable by bus, taxi, or rental car. The Condado area offers advantages over the Isla Verde area, in being away from the noise of the airport and closer to good restaurants and shopping, and the old city.
We have two recommendations. The complimentary breakfast offers yogurts, white bread, jams, coffee, orange juice, ham and cheese, and sometimes pastry, but would be truly outstanding with the addition of tropical fruits, local breads (such as pan agua), and pastries each day. Also, we found the lack of a door on the shower area in the penthouse 2 suite, an inconvience for a family.
The Coral Princess is a great little find
Very charming boutique style hotel in a great location in the Condado just a two minute walk from the beach and many very good restaraunts within walking distance. Super clean and very reasonably priced. The staff is quite nice and willing to help you make arrangements for day trips or offer dining suggestions. If you have a car, parking is very limited but they have arrangements with another hotel nearby at a charge of $8.00 per day. Rooms are done in a minimal modern decor but quite comfortable. Our only complaint was hot water being inconsistenly available in the shower but that seems to be the norm at many hotels in San Juan. We would certainly stay there again.
Jewel of a Hotel(a real find!)
My stay was excellent.The location ,cleanliness,staff,complimentary breakfast buffet,and pool were all very good!The rooms were new and deco/modern.A small waterfall pool in the back.Marble floors and jaccuzi tubs were a nice touch.Located at THE most happening part of the beach.When we arrived we were so glad to have picked the right hotel in the right spot!The next time we go we will stay again!!Did I mention its in the greatest location ?A New York guest
Cute and quaint
this quaint little inn is nice place to stay. The owner mildred is very helpful and resourseful. we visited the island on june 23 the room was beautifully decorated just a little small with everything you need. the beach is less than a two minute walk all the tours pick you up from the hotel which they can arrange for you so if your looking for a reasonable safe and comfortable place to stay this is it from hollis&hempstead.

Travel Blogs from San Juan
I had saved our most difficult adventure for our last full day in Puerto Rico: Old San Juan. From everything that I had heard, Old San Juan is beautiful and chock full of interesting things, but also sort of difficult to manage. For one, Old San Juan is located in a tiny island right next to San Juan, which means that it is difficult to drive around and even harder to find parking. The island is full of little blue cobble stone alleys that wind and cut back and ...
... more and more that while we may still be "young" (though our cracking bones tell us otherwise), life is short!
We realized that accomplishing ALL the items on our bucket list in 5 short weeks is a bit unreasonable and well, frankly impossible (I don't think I'll be able to "bestow wisdom to my grandchildren this year", ha ha ha), so this trip will focus on a few select goals. Instead "Neu-Beginnings 2015" (clever name, no?) will attempt to accomplish the ...
... wandered the streets and found a Coach Factory outlet and some other shops, but didn’t end up buying anything. We eventually worked our way down to the coastal area and walked along the trail towards El Morro. We watched the sunset and saw all the wild cats that seem to have inhabited this area. We headed back to the bus station where we expected another long wait, but fortunately, only had to wait 10 minutes before a bus came along ...
... off and take a taxi anyway, lol. Its a flat fee, so really we could have stayed anywhere but oh well, we had Hilton points to burn. The hotel was pretty much the same as any embassy suites you have been in - it was very nicely kept up and though they were remodeling the upper levels while we were there, you wouldn't know it if there was not plastic covering the hallways. They was indeed a casino, but they shoved it into the corner across from the main desk, so you could hardly notice ...
... 160; The tour shuttle was similar to the shuttle in Old Town San Juan- like the shuttle from the parking lot to the park at Disneyland. They had plastic covers on both sides of the shuttle to protect us from the rain, but what harm could a little water do? To some of the other tourists it seemed like getting wet was the worst thing that could happen to them. I can't understand why someone would spend all day in a pool on a cruise ship, then ...
